People ask me "What is an LGBT friendly therapist"?
My answer: "Being okay having a person from that community on their couch" - however, the therapist might never have done therapy with that community or only here and there, maybe had 1-2 clients in a year, 5 years or decade.
Of course I am "LGBT Friendly" because you are welcome on my couch - but moreover I am LGBT AFFIRMING/ AFFIRMATIVE and part of the community myself. So... you don't have to explain everything to me, I already get it.
My office is NOT the place for conversion therapy nor reparative therapy... so please don't ask me to repair or convert your family member or child.
I am a SAFE PLACE and SAFE SPACE...
